Dating disability people
Being in a rush, I decided to go in my wheelchair, without the leg braces I usually wear.I am a paraplegic, paralyzed from just above my waist down to my feet.
Since I don’t have any control of my waist or legs my shorter right leg kind of swings first and my left drags the floor just a little as it swings through. I am used to people staring at my legs as I am almost always in a skirt or dress. Now I even like to show the leg braces off a little.Sometimes my skirts barely cover the thigh straps on the tops of my braces.I’ve become used to wearing pantyhose too which I never used to do.My ample breasts are my best feature so I like to show them off a little with a tight blouse.Most men say I’m attractive but are not interested in dating paraplegic girls or dating wheelchair girls in general.It’s much easier than getting a wheelchair through crowded hallways and elevators.
The braces start at the tops of my thighs and go down to knee locks so I can bend my legs if I’m sitting.
Guys into dating paraplegic girls are often into stockings and pantyhose as well.
When I use my wheelchair I don’t need a pair of shoes with a build-up. The footrests on my chair are in the middle and close together.
Disability Rights Policy Intern Shanae Heard shares her thoughts on independence, dependence and adaptability.
This is the story of how I met Jeff and our first date together. Jeff doesn’t seem to mind dating paraplegic girls or that I’m handicapped. I still can’t believe, if I wasn’t running late for work that day, we may have never met.
The right footrest plate is just a little higher to make up the difference in my leg length.
